Your Love Guard Me Through The Night…
TONIGHT I Pray that the spirit of favor be opened on you everywhere you go in Jesus’ name! I declare “right now” to be a beginning of great things in your life! Whatever your situation- the Lord will uphold and raise you! Jesus is a Restorer…Nothing is impossible for God. He can even use your enemies to promote you. He is above all things. He is above your problems, your pain and all of the swirling events in this ever changing world. I pray that as you look to Jesus you will rise above your circumstances and rest in Him. I pray that through His light and its warmth you find His peace that passes all understanding. I pray that you realize that you can have as much of His peace as you desire. You only need to call His name. Just say Jesus help me and He will. He is the life line that pulls us ever closer to Him if we allow Him. I pray that all of you stay open to HIS love and peace. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen… I Love you all … God bless you!!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/4Tsqjn
The Role of the Holy Spirit
Truth For LifeDo not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.Ephesians 4:30
All that the believer has must come from Christ, but it comes solely through the channel of the Spirit of grace. Just as all blessings flow to you through the Holy Spirit, so also no good thing can come out of you in holy thought, devout worship, or gracious act apart from the sanctifying operation of the same Spirit.
Even if the good seed is sown in you, it still lies dormant until He works in you to will and to do of His own good pleasure.
Do you desire to speak for Jesus-how can you unless the Holy Spirit touches your lips?
Do you desire to pray? Sadly, what dull work it is unless the Spirit makes intercession for you!
Do you desire to subdue sin? Would you be holy? Would you imitate your Master? Do you desire to rise to superlative heights of spirituality? Are you looking to be made like the angels of God, full of zeal and love for the Master’s cause? You cannot without the Spirit-“Apart from me you can do nothing.”
O branch of the vine, you can have no fruit without the sap! O child of God, you have no life within you apart from the life that God gives you through His Spirit!
So let us not grieve Him or provoke Him to anger by our sin. Let us not quench Him even in one of His faintest motions in our soul; let us foster every suggestion and be ready to obey every prompting.
If the Holy Spirit is indeed so mighty, let us attempt nothing without Him; let us begin no project and carry on no enterprise and conclude no transaction without seeking His blessing.
Let us give Him the due homage of feeling our entire weakness apart from Him, and then depend alone upon Him, having this for our prayer: “Open my heart and my whole being to Your fullness, and uphold me with Your Spirit when I have received that Spirit in my inward parts.”
I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:5
TONIGHT I Pray that the Lord to help you to put off anger, loss of temper and bitterness and put on being tenderhearted and sensitive! You may have some obstacles in your path, but the good news is, the Power that is for you is greater than any power that is against you. I declare power to violently resist the enemy! The Holy Spirit can conquer all of the storms in your life!!! Take His hand and as you walk with Him be as the birds that fly into the WIND as it pushes against them, it moves them higher into the heavens. That even in the worst storms the Lord will hold you in His arms and allow you to rest in Him. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen… I Love You All!!! God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/4TVx6Y
Start with a BridgeMake the most of every opportunity in these evil days.—Ephesians 5:16
A problem that Christians often have when they share the gospel is going into attack mode on a person’s sin straightaway: “Oh yeah, I see that you are into this. Well, let tell me you something…”
Wait. Hold on. Maybe you ought to try to bring that person to Christ first. I am not saying that you shouldn’t confront someone about his or her sin. But remember the example of Jesus as He talked with the Samaritan woman at the well? She had been married and divorced five times and was living with a man. But Jesus didn’t start by slamming her for her immorality. He spoke to her in a symbolic way: “Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life” (John 4:13–14).
When possible, find common ground and build a bridge to your listener. Paul, when he stood before King Agrippa, began by saying, “I am fortunate, King Agrippa, that you are the one hearing my defense today against all these accusations made by the Jewish leaders, for I know you are an expert on all Jewish customs and controversies” (Acts 26:2–3).
This was not flattery on Paul’s part, but the truth. Agrippa was steeped in the ways of the Jews as their secular ruler appointed by Rome. Paul was respectful of Agrippa’s office. Agrippa was an immoral man, and Paul could have brought that out. Instead, he began building a bridge.
There is a built-in offense in the message of the cross. Let’s not make it worse. When we share the gospel, we need to build a bridge with people and not unnecessarily offend them. I love this and have to agree with Pastor Greg Laurie on this. The people that I have shared Jesus with come to Him because of the love not because of the judgment. They will know that we are Christian by our love. It isn’t just a four letter word it is a way of living our life. If we shine brightly with the love of Jesus Christ they will be attracted to that love like a moth to a light. I hope you are blessed by the love of Jesus Christ today!!!
Tonight I Pray that you get into the habit of putting on the full armor of God every single day! Don’t allow anything to come between you and Jesus. I pray that you realize that the closer we get to the end the more trials Satan will throw in our path. It will be when we have HIS full armor on that the Holy Spirit will be able to flow through us and carry us through the trials to the place He wants us to be. Then we will have the opportunity to seek out the Lord so that we can please Him above everything else in our life. I pray that we walk IN the Lord and not try to walk in both this world and with Jesus for when you allow other people’s expectations to drive you, your energy is scattered to the wind draining you of everything. When we pretend to be something we are not, we cannot please God. I pray that we all turn our eyes to Jesus and make Him the central focus of our lives, for it is utterly impossible to be inauthentic while we are in the Presence of the Lord. He has designed us to need Him every moment and when we realize this He will show us that He can meet every single one of our needs. Hold tightly to His hands and allow Him to lead you through the maze of darkness and into the warm light of His eternal Love!!! In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen… I Love You All!!! God Bless You!!!!♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/4T7pHz
TONIGHT let every counsel, design, plan, desire, expectation, imagination, device and activity of the enemy against your life be rendered null and void!!! We can’t reach our highest potential in our own ability. It’s going to take the Most High God breathing in our direction, making a way where it looks like there is no way. Don’t let the giant problems, restrictions, or even legitimate excuses deter your dreams and overpower your passions. Go for what God has placed in your heart! I command every power prolonging any battle in your life to receive permanent defeat in Jesus’ name! The spirit of fear and worry is overturned! Move forward in the name of Jesus Christ I pray!!! Be Blessed!!! In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen. I love you all. God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/4Srw9m
TONIGHT I pray that every good thing presently eluding your purpose should flow into you in the name of Jesus! Release for your harvest! May there be a wave of God’s glory and a move of His Presence, Power and Person to hit this earth in an unprecedented way! HE is gracious to you; If you call upon HIM, He will answer you. All you who wait for Him Weep no more. Salvation is here. Cry out to Him for help! As soon as He hears you, He will answer you. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” I pray that HE will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shall go: That HE will guide you. He has gone before you and I pray that He will make a way where there seems to be none. I pray that you follow Him closely. Don’t get ahead of Him and don’t lag behind. No longer let the spirit of fear speak to you. I pray that as you stay close to Him, you will find that it is In HIS Presence that there is peace and joy!!! Trust in Him, lean on Him, and don’t be afraid of falling, for HE shall always catch you and set you back on your feet. I pray that as You abide under the shadow of HIS wings, that HE will hide you from the enemy. The enemy may look for you, but he cannot find you. Stay close to the Holy Spirit. You abide in Him and He in you. NOTHING shall by any means harm you. In Jesus name we pray, Amen and Amen. I Love You All!!! God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/4SZlTh
I Pray TONIGHT for an increase in revelation knowledge, wisdom and understanding. You will walk in supernatural favor and be anointed by the Most High God! I bind every spirit of rejection, failure and defeat over your life, your family, your finances and your calling! You will be blessed in everything the Lord has assigned you to do! You will hold HIS hand and walk through storms, only to come out of that storm and into the SON’s Light!!! I pray that the Lord break any fear, intimidation and anxiety that holds you back from fulfilling your dream and destiny in the name of Jesus! BE BLESSED! Amen and Amen… I Love you all!!!… God bless you!!! :):):) http://dlvr.it/4RXZGD
When many things seem to be going wrong, trust Me. When your life feels increasingly out of control, thank Me. These are supernatural responses, and they can lift you above your circumstances. If you do what comes naturally in the face of difficulties, you may fall prey to negativism. Even a few complaints can set you on a path that is a downward spiral, by darkening your perspective and mind-set. With this attitude controlling you, complaints flow more and more readily from your mouth. Each one moves you steadily down the slippery spiral. The lower you go, the faster you slide; but it is still possible to apply brakes. Cry out to Me in My Name! Affirm your trust in Me, regardless of how you feel. Thank Me for everything, though this seems unnatural—even irrational. Gradually you will begin to ascend, recovering your lost ground.
When you are back on ground level, you can face your circumstances from a humble perspective. If you choose supernatural responses this time—trusting and thanking Me—you will experience My unfathomable Peace. ~Jesus Calling~
But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.—Psalm 13:5
Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. —Ephesians 5:20
TONIGHT I PRAY that you will rejoice and be thankful!!! That as you walk with the Lord through this day, practice trusting and thanking Him all along the way. For it is when we trust in Him that His peace will flow into us. Thankfulness lifts you up above your circumstances. I pray you realize that He does His greatest works through people with grateful, trusting hearts. Rather than planning and evaluating, practice trusting and thanking the Lord continually. I pray that as you rest in the Lord Jesus, a shift will take place that will revolutionize your life. Walk in that faith! Walk in that trust!!! In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen. I love you all! God bless your sweet hearts!!!!♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/4QqWBc
Thinking of You
Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works which You have done; and Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order; if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. —Psalm 40:5
One of my favorite verses about what God says concerning the future is Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Contextually these words were given to the Israelites while they were in captivity in Babylon. They saw no future. They thought they would be captives forever. But God was saying, “No, actually not forever. It will last for seventy years. I warned you. You kept turning to idols. And now you are reaping what you have sown. But one day you will get out of Babylon. You will return to your homeland. So I know the thoughts I think toward you, … thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
I love that for so many reasons. For one, notice that God doesn’t say, “I know the thought I once had toward you.” I don’t know about you, but the realization that God Almighty, the Creator of the universe, would have a single thought about me would be more than enough. Just one thought. Just one! I thought about Greg. I am done with him now. I am on to other things. But He did think about me for a moment. And He says, “I know the thoughts that I think toward you”—more than one.
Also, they are thoughts of peace, not of evil. They are good thoughts to give you a future and a hope. The word future in Jeremiah 29:11 also could be translated “an expected end” or “a ground of hope” or “things hoped for.” There will be an outcome.
God’s will for you is far better than your plans for yourself. Will you believe that? I was talking to someone today who asked me about this and here the Lord answers me right here in my morning devotion. I believe that He has plans for each one of us and they are great ones!!! We only need to stay open to the Lord, get into the Word and listen when He speaks to us. I hope you enjoy this devotional from Pastor Greg Laurie as much as I did. Have a wonderful Sunday!!! God bless you!!!
Tonight I Pray that you realize that Jesus not only loves you but he likes you! We can take everything to Him in prayer. I pray that you trust Him to meet your needs one day at a time. I pray that you delight yourself in the Lord and rejoice in Him with singing. As you are still in His Presence, listen for His voice and for when you do there is a treasure there just waiting to be found as He pours out His blessings upon you. Rest in the Lord tonight and let your slumber be filled His Peace that passes all understanding. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen… I Love You All!!! God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/4QXsgt
